I couldn't let the day pass by without saying "Merry Christmas" to everyone. Craig has been pretty sick since he had to chain up during that blizzard. It really took a toll on him, and this is day 5 and counting of him not feeling too good, or having much of a voice. I've been fixing him hot lemon and honey drinks the last couple of days and that always makes him feel better for a little while.
Since the blizzard, we have been lucky with good roads going back over the mountain passes again, no doubt with the help of positive thoughts and prayers from our loved ones. We skated by once again very early this morning when we left Weed, CA at 3am as a new storm was fast approaching. In celebration, we were able to stop at the Rolling Hills Casino in Corning, CA where they have one of the best buffets that I have every eaten at. I was able to load up on some fresh veggies, prime rib, and a piece of cheesecake......yum yum. Made Christmas that much nicer for us.
What wasn't as nice to see was the $2.00 senior citizen discount we got. Since when did we grow so old? I still feel like I'm in my 20's. Oh well, we managed a little yule time cheer and donned some reindeer ears for a quick photo opportunity. Craig of course had to act like he didn't want to, but we all know better.
We are scheduled to pick up a load in Modesto, CA Wednesday afternoon, and head right back up through the mountain passes again and deliver in Sumner, WA on Friday. Some positive thoughts and prayers are always appreciated for a safe journey, and that Craig will not have to put on chains.......at least until he is feeling back to normal.
